Suspended former Head of the Intelligence Response Team, DCP Abba Kyari, has deleted his latest Facebook post just as the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, received the report of the Special Investigation Panel on the indictment of the deputy police commissioner in a $1.1m Internet scam allegedly carried out by an Instagram influencer, Abbas Ramon aka Hushpuppi and four others.

Kyari had on Thursday resumed on social media after a three-week break. His last Facebook post was on August 4, 2021, which he had deleted almost immediately and disappeared from the Blueville.

However, the Borno State indigene took to his verified Facebook page with over 450,000 followers on Thursday.

Kyari shared a 21-second hilarious TikTok video posted by one Sanda Tobacco wherein a cart pusher was videoed displaying some roller skating skills while the videographer laughingly said the cart pusher “is very crazy wallahi!”.

But the post was no longer on his page as of the time of filing this report.

Recall that the Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agent, Andrew Innocenti, had alleged that Hushpuppi contracted the services of Kyari after a “co-conspirator,” Chibuzo Vincent allegedly threatened to expose the alleged $1.1m fraud committed against a Qatari businessman.

Innocenti, who said he ransacked the voice calls and WhatsApp conversations between Kyari and Hushpuppi, had also alleged that the latter paid the police officer N8m or $20,600 for the arrest and detention of Vincent.

Kyari had taken to Facebook on July 29, 2021, to chronicle his denial against the allegations but he later deleted the post after editing for about 12 times.

The IGP had on August 2, 2021, constituted the Special Investigation Panel headed by the Deputy Inspector-General of Police in charge of the Force Criminal Investigations Department, Joseph Egbunike, to probe the allegations.

Egbunike on Thursday submitted his findings which he said “is an outcome of a painstaking, transparent and exhaustive investigative process.”

He revealed that the report contained the case file of the probe, evidence and findings as well as testimonies from Kyari and other persons and groups linked to the matter.

The police are expected to transfer the report to the Police Service Commission which had equally set up an in-house panel to study documents related to the indictment of Kyari by the FBI.
